Brief Answer:
it's a different type of drug

Detailed Answer:

tagamet belongs to a different class of drugs, so your allergic reactions to the drugs you've mentioned are not relevant. If you've had allergic reactions with all those drugs, I suppose there are not many alternative left. You can only find out by trying as there is no way to predict an allergic reaction to it.

Kind Regards!
